Quest Specialty Chemicals Buys U.S. Chemicals & Plastics

Charleston, SC-based Quest Specialty Chemicals has acquired U.S. Chemical & Plastics (USC). Terms of the transaction were not disclosed. U.S. Chemical & Plastics of Massillon, OH specializes in automotive refinishing products, including paints and coatings, plastic fillers, putties, and other accessories used in the collision repair industry.

QSC plans to position the USC product line within its wholly owned Quest Automotive Products division. This would join USC with Matrix System Automotive Finishes, which offers a complementary line of intermix basecoats and is known for its color-matching capabilities and clearcoat products.
